The Syrian Government is drafting a law which will make commercial transactions with Israel punishable by death, an intercepted Damascus broadcast said today.

The report stated that those found to be trading in any way with “so-called Israel” will be put to death and that Syria hopes to have this law uniformly adopted by all member-states of the Arab League.
